Name Titles

We are having a debate here at the office about what to call the graphics we put over interviews (IE: Dr. John Smith – President of The Smart Guys). Are these Name Keys, Name Supers, Graphic Titles...

And what about location titles (IE: Lake Superior – Duluth MN)?

What does the industry call these things? Is there a standard or is it depend on the people you work with?

In broadcasting they're known as lower-thirds. The archaic nomenclature is lower-third supers.
Name - title - locator are all common elements of lower thirds.

Did that shed any light?

I come from a time when they were all generically referred to generically as "Chyrons", but today we say C.G. or lower third C.G.

Yup...lower thirds, as they occur in the lower third of the screen. Some producers still call them "Chyrons," back when the machine that made them was a Chyron.

Because they can be anywhere on screen the common parlance in my area is just supers. This covers all superimposed text really.

Some people differentiate with 'name supers' or 'date supers'. Call em what you like, as long as the people you work with understand.

I find it so interesting that there is so much variety in terms like these. Thanks everyone for your feedback. I think I won the debate. :)
